As the $22M refurbishment comes to completion we slowly start to reopen the historic Victoria Park Village - firstly we have the VPV Pop-Up Markets every weekend.

This will be followed by the VPV Food Truck Market (August) and then the VPV Farmers Market (October).

All this is in addition to the 7-day a week shopping and food and beverage offer already available as part of the historic Victoria Park Village.

Come and have a look and revisit each week as the Village continues to grow and new events are added!

...while you are walking around the category 1 historically protected Village with your coffee in hand you will see a cliff that the Village backs onto, this is the original Auckland coastline before the land was reclaimed, today you can still have lunch while sitting under the Pohutakawa trees that would have hung over the sea.

Built between 1890 and 1905 the precinct was used to house the horses that pulled the carts around the City streets to pick up the rubbish from Queen St and surrounds, the horses would return to the precinct and the rubbish was burned in the large brick chimney you see today - this generated enough electricity to run the street lamps back on Queen Street.

The original ramp that took the horses up to the 2 storey stables is now the Celebrity Walk and you can see a number of famous New Zealanders have left their hand, foot or hoof prints on The Walk
This is one of the oldest - if not the oldest - remaining buildings and precincts in its almost original condition left remaining in Auckland City - so while attending one of the many events at Victoria Park Village take the time to have a look and immerse yourself in a piece of Heritage Auckland.
